Looking for some fun titles for the sequel to Clean Sweep. Staying within the “broom” theme or cleaning theme or inn-related theme would be a plus.
I have some codes for complimentary download of the audiobook of Clean Sweep. One will be awarded to the winning title and two will be awarded to two random commenters as a consolation prize. You need to be an Audible customer (have an account or an Amazon account) to redeem the codes.
Let’s see, the theme of the book will center around peace talks involving vampire of House Krahr and a new formidable faction. First installment should be up on Friday so let’s have the deadline for contest being around noon on Wednesday.
As always, you must comment on the blog, because if you send me an email or comment on Goodreads, we won’t see it.
So while I am on vacation, I have periods of time when my brain is just refusing to do stuff. I decided to play with Sculpey, which is a polymer clay. Given as I have no sculpting abilities whatsoever and that haven’t touched clay since sixth grade, the results are predictably disastrous. I followed the Dragons and Beasties tutorial and produced this somewhat clunky result. She isn’t perfect but I like her anyway.
So if you were worried about me quitting my day job, it’s pretty clear that it’s not in the cards. But I had fun.
Gordon and I (and I am guessing Erika Tsang, who is the editor for BURN FOR ME) are so happy that you guys are pleased with the book’s price, release date, and availability in US and UK.
To answer a few questions that came in through comments and email.
BURN FOR ME is the first book in a trilogy. The series is titled Hidden Legacy. The format will be very similar to Kate Daniels in that each book will have its own beginning and end and could be read out of order, but together they will show the progression of the main conflict and relationship.
The heat level will be above Kate Daniels series, although we are doing the slow burn. Slow burn is kind of a relative term at this point, because they burn quite hot and the relationship progresses – hopefully – in line with the characters’ personal growth. There is an HEA. It’s an Avon title. :D Of course, there would be an HEA.
The tone of the books overall is at the same time a little more mature than Kate Daniels, but also a little less gory. Bad things happen, but there is less decapitation and more shooting and collapsing of buildings. Bad guys do die. I think there is a lot of humor, but that’s more for you to judge than for us. I cracked myself up a couple of times and Gordon laughed in a spot or two.
Kate Daniels is more of a heroic fantasy/police procedural. Hidden Legacy is more of a political thriller, similar to Of Swine and Roses and Silver Shark. It’s unapologetically over the top at times, but that’s why we had so much fun writing it. We hope you’ll like it as well.
Ahem. I got permission. Ta-da!
#1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews launches a brand new Hidden Legacy series, in which one woman must place her trust in a seductive, dangerous man who sets off an even more dangerous desire…
Nevada Baylor is faced with the most challenging case of her detective career—a suicide mission to bring in a suspect in a volatile case. Nevada isn’t sure she has the chops. Her quarry is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, who can set anyone and anything on fire.
Then she’s kidnapped by Connor “Mad” Rogan—a darkly tempting billionaire with equally devastating powers. Torn between wanting to run or surrender to their overwhelming attraction, Nevada must join forces with Rogan to stay alive.
Rogan’s after the same target, so he needs Nevada. But she’s getting under his skin, making him care about someone other than himself for a change. And, as Rogan has learned, love can be as perilous as death, especially in the magic world.
When? October 28, 2014. (I didn’t expect it until December.)
